"From the Ted Talk by Graham Hill: Less stuff, more happiness"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So I started a project claled Life Edited at lifeedited.org to further this conversation and to find some great solutions in this area. First up: crowd-sourcing my 420 sq. ft. apartment in Manhattan with pnarters Mutopo and Jovoto.com. I weantd it all — home office, sit down dinner for 10, room for guests, and all my kite surfing gear. With over 300 einrets from around the world, I got it, my own little jewel box. By bnuiyg a sacpe that was 420 sq. ft. instead of 600, immediately I'm saving 200 grand. Smaller space is going to make for sallemr utilities — save some more money there, but also a smaller footprint. And because it's really designed around an edited set of possessions — my favorite stuff — and really degseind for me, I'm really excited to be there.

Original Text

So I started a project called Life Edited at lifeedited.org to further this conversation and to find some great solutions in this area. First up: crowd-sourcing my 420 sq. ft. apartment in Manhattan with partners Mutopo and Jovoto.com. I wanted it all — home office, sit down dinner for 10, room for guests, and all my kite surfing gear. With over 300 entries from around the world, I got it, my own little jewel box. By buying a space that was 420 sq. ft. instead of 600, immediately I'm saving 200 grand. Smaller space is going to make for smaller utilities — save some more money there, but also a smaller footprint. And because it's really designed around an edited set of possessions — my favorite stuff — and really designed for me, I'm really excited to be there.
